If anyone has experience shipping flat items from US to Canada, please advise! I feel like something must be wrong, I'm aware of rate increases but can't find anything to suggest I should have expected to pay 100% more.
Basically, it's no longer profitable for me to ship art prints to Canada at the rates I'm getting – and they've always been the least expensive international destination for me. Was there a price hike that explains why I'm paying double?
Two years ago I was paying $4-5, last year it was $5-7 and now after paypal switched to shipstation, I've been using pirate ship and everything has been fine until my first Canada shipment on the platform – $14.11 to ship basically a flat paper item in a poly envelope. That's basically double what I was paying only a few months ago.
Any help is appreciated!

Edit: I'm open to suggestions, my only requirement really is that the method includes tracking.
